Exciting new chapter for Fettes College

September 2025 will herald in a new chapter for Fettes College, with the opening of a Pre-Prep within the Prep School.

This new facility, for children from the compulsory schooling age of 5+, is part of Fettes Prep’s inspired new vision – Prep for Life - which was launched in June. Full details of this development will be announced at our Open Day on Saturday 12th October 2024 - and families interested in entry in 2025 are encouraged to register to attend: Register for Open Day

As part of our current offering for 7-13 year olds, Fettes Prep provides families with flexible wraparound care available daily to all day pupils in the Prep School. At no additional cost, this allows each family the option to drop-off as early as 7.45am and to determine the pick-up time that is most convenient for them, on any given week day - with pick-up times ranging from 3.45pm to 6pm and as late at 7pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays – during the extended day, pupils have access to an extraordinary range of activities and can go home, having had lots of fun with their friends, enjoyed tea, and having completed their homework.

In addition, we are also delighted to announce the introduction of a morning minibus service, to bring day pupils to the Prep School each morning, initially from West Edinburgh with additional routes in the pipeline.
